I remember him now; the guy is definitely worth a look.

Roberson! Thanks for the correction. I always have it in my head as Robinson.

My son is a sr. with him, and said two teams showed a lot of interest in Roberson at their pro day, taking the time to interview him and have him fill out some paperwork. The Texans were one of those two teams.

I figured he'd either get drafted late, if he was drafted at all, or be an UDFA.

Wow, I can't believe your son is already a senior. Time flies. Were there any teams there interested in a 6'9" o-lineman?

Looks like we might have enough guys with family members in or nearly college football to start a thread somewhere. My oldest nephew was a 4 year letterman at baylor from 07-10 (graduated and is an asst coach at his high school)

My younger nephew just signed at letter ot intent at Arkansas state to play De and major in engineering.

I love Stills. Would take him over Swope even though they are even talent wise. The whole concussion thing scares me.

Every time I go through this year's list of WR prospects, I keep coming back to DeAndre Hopkins. He just seems like the right fit.

Love that GIF, but also hate it at the same time because I turned off the TV when we were down 21-0 early in the game. I hate my life.

Default Re: Why the Texans won't draft your favorite wide receiver

Dre comes from a national championship pedigree. From a football factory. I know the easiest thing to do when evaluating a young kid is to compare him to somebody you like, but IMO if the kid hasnt held a trophy over his head in college, he isnt Andre Johnson, and to believe he would have even half the career Dre has had is a dis-service to both players.

On topic: If the Texans dont address WR in the 1st 2 rounds of the draft is it OK to get back on the "Rick Smith Sucks Balls" train heading out of town?

If anything Smith should be working on a package to move up in the draft and get that legitimate replacement for Dre instead of looking at projects, those havent worked out thus far.

Yeah, my brother and a couple of his friends were talking about him the other day. My brother was out at the pro day, but didn't participate because of his acl injury.

Did your son participate in it?

My brother is about to graduate too. Matter of fact we're heading up there in a couple weeks for their graduation.
